Flood affected Changut villagers to get Nataud land for rehabilitation: HP Govt.
SHIMLA-Himachal Pradesh Government has directed Lahaul-Spiti administration to rehabilitate the Changut villagers by providing them Nataud as the entire village was washed away in flash-flood due to cloudburst on August 14, 2014.
The Chief Minister at Chhaling in Mayyad valley of Lahaul inaugurated the Chhaling bridge over Mayyad rivulet at Tingrit constructed with an outlay of Rs. 1.67 crore. He said it was due to compulsion that the people of the few villages who very affected by flash floods occupied government land. He directed the administration to restore their electricity connections.
He claimed, out of total 28 panchayats in Lahaul valley, 27 panchayats had already been connected with roads and the remaining Naalda panchayat would get road facility as the work on the bridge was on progress.
He announced for providing adequate financial assistance for renovation and repair of Trilokinath temple and assured for fulfilling other demands sympathetically. He said 500 solar lights had been installed in Lahaul valley under Jawaharlal Nehru Solar Mission and almost 17 to 18 lights had been installed in every single panchayat.
